I wish to thank WW2Talk members for extremely helpful tips, links and advice as I researched my historical fiction novel over the past few years. I couldn't have made it as accurate without you! My now-published book The Osprey and the Sea Wolf ~ The Battle of the Atlantic 1942 is told from the points of view of two protagonists: Rainer, a German U-Boat captain (modeled after Reinhard Hardegen who just died at age 105) and Ramón, a young Mexican-American B-25 pilot. In 1942 German U-Boats sent over 300 ships and 5000 seamen to the bottom of the ocean off the coast of North America. In the Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean, a seasoned U-boat commander and a young Mexican-American B-25 pilot engage in a deadly dance of war at sea and struggle with issues of love, honor, betrayal and racism on the home front.
